You have sent too many messages in too short a time--please wait before sending your next message.

I get this message when I try to save to Drafts.

Saving many drafts in a short period of time shouldn't be a problem or abuse, should be?

What are the limits?
How many message in how much time?
And if threshold is exceeded, how much time needed to reset this?

dont understand how could 3 messages be too much in ANY time period? ... :-o

These are most likely anti-spam measures. I don't know what the limits are, but it sounds like you're hitting them.

If it persists, contact an admin about the limits.

Drafts should not count against a spam limit.

So... Does anyone know what the limit is? I'm getting this after trying to forward a message.

Thanks

I see this is a really old topic, and nobody seems to know the answer. But I am wondering this too. I just got a game night set up at my local comic shop for my favorite board game. I am trying to send PMs to a bunch of people who expressed possible interest. I sent three PMs... THREE, and I am now getting this message.

Anybody have any idea what the limit is, and how long it is until you can send messages again? This is really frustrating and ridiculous. I can understand using controls like this to avoid spam, but this is ridiculously stringent. Plus, I must have been trying again for a half hour now, at least, only to keep getting this message.

There is an hourly cap for New Users to prevent spammers from flooding the geekmail system. If you hit your cap you should be able to geekmail again an hour later.

The limit on New Users accounts resets every hour. The restriction is there to stop spammers from sending massive amounts of geekmails from new accounts. Sorry for any inconvenience.


OP, I realise that you are not a new user but sounds like saving to drafts is somehow counting as a post even though it is private. I'd write it offline and then copy paste it in. Sound's like you'll be barred for 1 hour.

I get this often when I'm working on formatting in the 'testing forum':

'I wonder what this will look like' submit. 'This' submit. 'Yuck - this?' submit X20. Get sent to the front page for 'Double-Posting'.

Wow! Thanks, Liam Liam. Where did you find this information? I was going crazy trying to find BGG's terms of service, or FAQ's, or something, and could not find any answers anywhere.

Though, for the record, I sent THREE messages and started getting the error. But, good to know. I will try again in an hour and hopefully it will let me send again then.

The site is huge and can be rather counter-intuative when in doubt simply ask.

For the record, it looks like an hour may be correct. I'm able to send again.

Sorry to bring up an old topic but I searched and didnt find any other threads on this.

Anyone know what the time frame is and how long you have to wait to be able to send PMs again?

I was having a conversation with someone through PM and now I cant reply back.

I think it's an hour. On top of this I'd give it an additional 30mins.

If you post the users name I can give them a wee shout on your behalf.
